God's Son's And, His Daughters Should Have An Addiction On Jesus Christ Only:

Apostle James R, Winfree, Sr, I Am Mandated By The Lord To Cultivate, Enlighten, Empower, God's Nations Son's And Daughters In His Love, Inspiring the Worldwide Nations Social Media Churches Of Jesus Christ to reach our heavenly Father's will, plan and His purpose according to our Holy Blessed Savior Jesus Christ new Testament promise, and live their Kingdom lives on earth as it is in heaven:

The word addiction has two basic meanings. The first definition and the one most of us are familiar with, is “to cause to become physiologically or psychologically dependent on a habit-forming substance.” Those who are addicted or “given to much wine” ( Titus 1:7; 2:3 ), “ Drunkards ” ( 1 Timothy 3:3 ), or “ Heavy Drinkers ” ( 1 Timothy 3:8 ) are disqualified from teaching or holding a position of authority in the Church. Church leadership needs to be sober and self-controlled so that, by their example, they can teach others to be the same, for we know that “ Drunkards " . . . shall not inherit the kingdom of God” ( 1 Corinthians 6:10 ). Jesus Believers must not be dependent upon alcohol, and it stands to reason that this would also apply to addiction to any other substance, i.e. drugs, pornography, gambling, gluttony, tobacco, etc.

The second definition of addiction is “to occupy ( Oneself ) with or involve ( oneself ) in something habitually or compulsively.” This speaks of an unnatural (for the Christ Believer, at least) obsession with anything other than God: sports, work, shopping, and/or acquiring “stuff,” even family or children. We are to “ Love the Lord, our God, with all our hearts and with all our souls and with all our might” ( Deuteronomy 6:5 ), which is, according to Jesus Christ, the first and greatest commandment ( Matthew 22:37-38 ). We can conclude, then, that addiction to anything other than God our heavenly Father in the Person of Jesus Christ Himself is wrong. Jesus is the only one we can (and should) occupy ourselves with habitually. To do so with anything else draws us away from Him and displeases our holy blessed Savior. He alone is worthy of our complete attention, love, and service. To offer these things to anything or anyone else is idolatry God's sons and His daughters. Amen.
